Mail Art Gallery

A friend of mine made a gallery recently of all the mail art I had sent her over the years. Wow it looks like a shrine after I died or something. Wish I would have kept copies. Look at all that great tape in her window sill.

How I Spend My Week-ends

If you really look at this photo there are several tell tale signs about which part of the country it was taken. Send in your observations and I will post them.

Loopy Thingy's

When was the last time you sat down and leisurely made a woven pot holder on that tiny red square loom? You know the kind that is made with bags of stretchy cloth loops that are always way too small to fit from one side of the loom to the other....so eventually the whole thing pops off . In the end the finished potholder comes out to be about 5 inches wide and everyone knows you couldn't ever really use it. Anthropologie knows that too so they decided to find another use for the loopy thingys. If you are ever walking past their store check out the window displays. They are famous for using found objects in their installations and have great ideas that you can use at home.

Undercover Stencils

Although most of you thought Mary Ann just cut her own stencils for Visual Journaling and
taught great stenciling classes.... you may not have known she models part time as well.
Here is a photo of her from Modern Mechanix Magazine September 1929 under a assumed name.

Born With a Can of Spray Paint in Her Hand

Mary Ann Moss was born with a can of spray paint in her hand. When most people plop down on the couch and pop open a diet coke after work Mary Ann mixes a lime martini and strolls outside to her "paint area". If you ever are lucky enough to see her journals you will find layers and layers of sprayed magic, in between photos of her travels and recipes for every kind of martini under the sun. Yes she even has a spray paint martini. Mary Ann will be starting her first ON LINE CLASS so put down that diet coke and go straight to her blog to sign up.....and maybe one day we all will be just like her. Congrats Mary Ann on your first on line class!
